More Comfort, More Milk ~ GIVEAWAY!

My favorite jobs in the whole wide world are to be a wife and a mom. Don’t get me wrong…there are lots of challenges and lots of moments, days and even months where I second guess myself, and would readily admit that it’s been a ‘hard day.’ That said, being a wife and mom is one of those jobs where the blessings far outweigh the ‘hard days.’ The hugs, the snuggles, the smiles and giggles, the long talks, being able to have a helper to make cookies with, listening to a child read me a book, and the list goes on and on and on. With the youngest baby there are other bonding moments too…like being able to breastfeed…I feel privileged to have been able to nurse my children and am currently enjoying the breastfeeding journey again with our newest little family member. 🙂

Breastfeeding is amazing…I love it. However, sometimes it’s nice to have a little break…or some relief when our little guy decides he’s not very hungry that day. This is when I put to use my Philips Avent  Comfort Breast Pump. It’s the perfect way to find some relief when I’m feeling ‘too full,’ or to pump for a time when I won’t be able to breastfeed, but still want to give my baby his dose of mama’s milk.

The Philips Avent Comfort Breast Pump is available in either Manual or Electric. Personally, I like the manual breast pump. It is small, simple, efficient and easy to use at home or on the go. In fact, the Philips Avent products have won the Parent Tested Parent Approved (PTPA) Seal of Approval. Put simply, this means that this product has been tested and tried by real parents and has been found worthy of the PTPA seal. As a parent myself,  that means a lot.

Back to my own journey of breastfeeding and pumping. 🙂 As I mentioned earlier, I love the Avent Philips Manual Comfort Breast Pump. I’m not a big fan of being tied down to a plug-in, or having to worry about the batteries dying. As a mom of 6 kids, I need the freedom to be able to move around freely if need be. I also don’t pump daily, so the manual breast pump is also a great fit for the occasional pumper. I’m looking forward to putting it to use as we travel on some longer trips in the coming months. Using a bottle to feed while driving instead of stopping the vehicle to nurse will hopefully help us reach our destinations in a much quicker and smoother fashion. 😉

The Comfort Breast Pump lives up to its name. It is comfortable to use. The way it has been designed allows me to sit more comfortably with no need to lean forward. I remember having to lean forward with an old breast pump I used for my first baby many years ago…and I’m so glad they’ve figured out a way to get rid of the uncomfortable ‘leaning forward’ pumping position. The whole breast pump is compact, lightweight and VERY easy to store at home, in the diaper bag, in a backpack, etc. Assembly is very simple and cleaning is quick and easy as well.

Each breast pump also comes with a Natural bottle and nipple for your little ones. The natural latch on the nipple makes it easy for baby to go from breast to bottle.

Life as a mom is amazing. Life as a breastfeeding mom is amazing. And life with the opportunity to pump with our Philips Avent Comfort Breast Pump when I need to and to keep my baby happy and satisfied even when I’m not available is…you guessed it…amazing!

    I have no experience with a breast pump but my friend is expecting and she is planning on breast feeding & pumping, so this would be great to win for her.

  2. What a sweet little babe! Thanks for sharing your experience 🙂

  3. I did not have a breast pump, but my daughter is hoping for one with her upcoming baby.

  4. kristen visser says:

    Yes I did you a breast pump with both of my daughters! It was a life saver when I wanted to go out for a bit even to do groceries by myself knowing my husband could feed the girls while I was out

  5. I currently use a double breast pump and find it very convenient for feeding when outside of the home or when the little one is a bit fussy.

  6. My daughter uses a breastplate and finds it easier to feed her baby and plans to continue to use it after she returns from mat leave.

  7. My wife loves her breast pump and uses it when we travel.

  8. I haven’t because I’ve never been pregnant. My best friend however, would absolutely love this.

  9. Ive never used a breast pump but have friends who have mixed reviews on it. I think i would use it next time

  10. Harvinderks says:

    I only used a manual pump. It was fairly easy to use but it does become tiresome after a while. I never had a chance to use an electric one.

  11. I did not have a breast pump with the first child, though I would for the second.

  12. Jaclyn Bartlett says:

    I use my pump almost every day, some of it goes to my baby, but most is donated to babies in need.

  13. sara rai says:

    My friends have tried it. Even though they say its painful.
